    It seems to me from my own personal reading that many "mainstream" conservative commentaries are reformed leaning. While generally sticking to believers baptism and such they tend to imply calvinism. When I mean "mainstream", I am refering to
    NICNT: New Internatioal commentary new testament
    NIGTC: New International Greek testament commentary
    BECNT: Baker Exegetical commentary new testament
    PNTC: Pillar New Testament Commentary
    and the conservative entries of the WBC (Word Biblical Commentary).

    Anyway, I am only drawing from my own experience which is as follows,

    Carson: John (PNTC)
    Schreiner: Romans (BECNT)
    Moo: Romans (NICNT)
    Mounce: 1 Timothy (WBC)
    Lane: Mark (NICNT)
    Hafemann: 2 Corinthians (NIVapp)
    O'Brien: Ephesians (PNTC)

    and so on, I am getting tired of thinking of them. Can anybody else confer with my intuition on this one? Are most commentary writers in these series reformed or am I just reading the ones that are?
